Melissa MacFarlane | Funding For Artists | The Art Hunter | Ep 43 | Now LIVE
In this episode of The Art Hunter, David Hunt talks to entrepreneur Melissa MacFarlane who has contributed to the arts with the MacFarlane Fund.
Melissa’s first love is art, she studied art history at Latrobe, then went into the workforce via marketing, ended up managing bands and then studied interior design, followed by fine art. She met her husband and opened a cocktail bar, then 3 gastro pubs, then a vintage furniture and design store in Kyneton. More recently she opened a vintage store in Portland Oregon. In a twisted covid outcome, she has harnessed her entrepreneurial spirit and opened a licensed department store that houses all of her interests; vintage furniture, interior design, exotic liquor, cocktails and #daydrinking.
In The Art Hunter, David Hunt explores the artist with an in-depth look into their background; where they came from, the type and work they do, their latest work and where they see the future.
